INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
Carb Level: Low
- 1½ pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1½ tablespoons curry powder
- ⅛ teaspoon chili powder
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and transfer to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the curry and chili powder, and toss to coat evenly.
